Yep, I'm pretty old school in a number of ways :-). I still remember ribbon typewriters and what a pain they were to use when (not if) you made a mistake. This cute image and sentiment are part of a set from Hero Arts.
In order to create the background, I used Tim Holtz's Marbled Stain technique using Distress Stains (picket fence, barn door, rusty hinge, mustard seed) and then spritzed it with Perfect Pearl Mist (perfect pearl). In addition to stamping the image onto my background, I also stamped it onto a very old and fragile book page so I could fussy cut out the "typewriter paper". Then I stamped my image onto the book page. I also cut a small slit so that the paper feeds up from the typewriter (just like it would on a real typewriter). I added a couple of buttons for the typewriter ribbon spools and some twine for the typewriter ribbon. The "hi" buttons are Echo Park (For the Record) alpha stickers and are embellished with Epiphany Crafts bubble domes to make them look more like typewriter keys. A bit more twine and the front is complete. I also embellished the inside with a bit of twine and another piece of an old book page. I created an area for a written message and decorated the edges with a Martha Stewart punch (Cherish).
